Default rFactor - Getting started help :(

Hi All.

I finaly got my Logitech G27 yesterday. I have been playing alot of Live for speed over the years but i want to have something a little better now

So i had a look at rFactor and i seems nice. A bit of the same as LFS (Great online racing) but with better gfx.

But i cant seem to get a grip of what i need to race in rFactor - What do i need to download? It seems there are tons of downloads.

Any help would be nice

What do you prefer? Open wheel? NASCAR (tip tops?), touring cars? Rally?

You can start at rfactorcentral.com. They have a "Hall of Fame"

I prefer open wheel myself. I have CTDP's F1 2005, CartFactor 1998, Champcar 2006 and Champcar 2007-2008, and Indycar 1994-95.

Oh, and download tracks.

Not everyone is willing to pay $400 a year for something they will use twice a week.

Peter, did you get the original rfactor? or download the beta of rfactor2? rfactor one has many great mods. if you like open wheelers, as in F1, I like the F1 RFT 2010 mod, our league used it this year. They also have their own trackpack for it with all of the tracks. I would also highly recommend Enduracers Endurance series mod, it is fantastic. it has prototypes, GT1 and GT2 cars.
